Google Says Let's Encrypt Certificated


Recommended Posts

After installing the Let's Encrypt certificiate, I received the following message from Google Search console:

Search Console

SSL/TLS certificate does not include domain name https://www.cityhomevacuum.com/

To: Webmaster of https://www.cityhomevacuum.com/,

Google has detected that the current SSL/TLS certificate used on https://www.cityhomevacuum.com/ does not include https://www.cityhomevacuum.com/ domain name. This means that your website is not perceived as secure by some browsers. As a result, many web browsers will block users accessing your site by displaying a security warning message. This is done to protect users’ browsing behavior from being intercepted by a third party, which can happen on sites that are not secure.


The setup in cPanel looks OK and neither IE 11 Chrome, nor Firefox for Windows are displaying warnings or blocking the site. Neither are Chrome or Firefox for Android.


Is this just a "false positive" or is there something incorrect in the setup or certificate I need to fix?

It looks like the issue is lack of SNI support in older browsers/OS combinations.


I ran the SSL server test from https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/. The overall rating is A, but includes the message "This site works only in browsers with SNI support". However, this affects only Android 2, IE 6 and IE 8 (Windows XP) and Java 6u45, so it seems there would be relatively few real issues.
